In pari delicto melior est conditio defendentis


In pari delicto melior est conditio defendentis
Where the parties are equally at fault, the situation of the defendant is the more favorable. If a person suffers injury while violating a public law, the other party being also a transgressor, he cannot recover for the injury, if his unlawful act was the cause of the injury. Gilmore v Fuller, 198 Ill 130, 65 NE 84.
